Commie Con: The Climate Cult Abandons Science for Theatrics.

BearHayes
Hundreds of people gathered in New York, dressed in colorful, elaborate costumes and carrying comic banners of their favorite character. They were joined by super hero actors like Mark Ruffalo and Arnie Grape and among other figures of note, planet Earth’s very own Jor-El, Al Gore (The similarities in names is uncanny, like the X-Men) hoping to make a media spectacle and generate viral buzz of their latest movie or book.

Except this wasn’t about comic books and Game of Thrones.

Late last month, Hundreds of concerned cosplay activists, actors and entertainers, oil barons and apparently whats left of the Aztec empire crammed into Manhattan to protest the Earth on the eve of the UN climate summit under the hashtag #FloodWallSt and #PeopleClimateMarch, in the hopes of directing the world”s attention to the dangers of capitalism, the fuzzy perks of socialism, the people of Palestine and of course Global Warming.

The only thing missing were actual climatologists.

The climate cult has become an absurd theater of cartoonish smoke stack drawings, CGI ice shelves collapsing,  actors accepting awards, politicians accepting awards, bow ties and overly dramatic PSA’s and bogus predictions, none of which mind you have anything in the least to do with scientific climate data of the Earth which is as of late is showing the natural evolution of the Earth’s climate cycle. The growing problem with every argument modern leftists are making is they increasingly refuse to be honest about what their arguments are really about. Abortion for example, is not about women’s health but population control and is directly tied to their Climate stalling obsession, as written about by Eugenicist John Holdren, a man held in such esteem that he currently serves as President Obama’s Science Czar. Holdren believes in science so ardently, he went as far as suggesting in his book Ecoscience that the United States government in cases of over population and climate crisis, should be able to force mass sterilizations upon the larger poverty stricken parts of society, quoting directly from his book:

”. Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution  if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.

Of course Ecoscience was written in the 1977 and surely the progressive elite no longer believes this. Except that Ruth Bader Ginsburg stated as much just last month.

As the culture under a President obsessed with social upheaval and activism slides further and further left the more they realize their time in spotlight is becoming shorter and shorter, the true nature and motives for “Protecting the Planet” become revealed for what all protest movements of the past 5 years have been about. Wealth destruction and downfall of capitalism. Such as the Trayvon Martin shooting couldn’t simply a case of mistaken identity, it was a larger protest about race and class. Occupy Wall St. which made such a mockery of its own message, it was forced to die off and come back re-branded under the guise of occupying climate, with the same goal; institutionalized socialism. The climate cult has abandoned any claim they had on science in favor of political stunts, giant puppets, elaborate costumes and a message of anti-corporation and anti-capitalism. But because they are enabled by a commerce killing, activist President who boldly proclaims the science is settled and the debate is over, their motives become more obvious.

At the climate summit at the UN, Leonardo DiCaprio, addressing the governing body said ““I am not a scientist, but I don’t need to be, because the world’s scientific community has spoken, and they have given us our prognosis. If we do not act together, we will surely perish. Now is our moment for action.”

Republicans have used the “I’m not a scientist” line when asked about man made global warming and are ridiculed by the left, like for instance, Emily Atkin at Think Progress, who used this very line in a title to a piece that slammed “anti-science” Republican Senate candidates. But when Think Progress published a piece on Dicaprio donating  two million dollars to his own foundation, they used the very same quote from above.

Intellectual consistency is also a science.

None of what #FloodWallSt or Commie Con applies to climate science but that doesn’t matter. It’s the loudest voices and the brightest costumes that get noticed just as John Oliver demonstrated when he brought Bill Nye and his spinning bow tie out on his stage surrounded by actors in white lab coats to shout down another actor (The lab coats represents the Obama administration statistic of 97% consensus of climatologists). John Oliver unwittingly laid waste to the entire progressive argument as it applies to the climate of the planet. Climatologists aren’t the majority, but we progressives are.

This isn’t just educated hypothesis. This theory was demonstrated on the weekend of the climate march.

The same weekend as this costumed convention of the Hollywood absurd was dancing its way across Manhattan with their balloons and their puppets, a report surfaced from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration surfaced in the LA Times, stating the naturally occurring effects of climate warming:

“Changes in ocean circulation as a result of weaker winds were the main cause of about 1 degree Fahrenheit of warming in the northeast Pacific Ocean and nearby coastal land between 1900 and 2012, according to the analysis of ocean and air temperatures over that time.”

The story from the LA Times goes on to quote climatologist James Johnstone who contributed to the study for University of Washington’s Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean, “Changing winds appear to explain a very large fraction of the warming from year to year, decade to decade and the long-term.”

Was this report widespread and embedded into tweets of reporters, media or facebook posts of Neil Degrasse Tyson’s own personal cult? No. It was ignored.
What the progressive left is attempting to do with some marginal success, is shift the scientific conversation away from continuing climate studies to people in wigs and Captain Planet costumes.

Here was an actual scientific argument being made about the natural warming of the planet, but it didn’t fit into their  political agenda of the Koch Bros and the evils of capitalism. The Earth’s own evolution of climate couldn’t overcome the hubris of a media cult in brightly colored spandex. Instead the focus was on a parade of people dressing up like the ancient Aztecs bowing to a giant plastic god in the middle of 5th avenue. That’s who got the attention.

John Oliver will not be OBLITERATING any dissent to that report.

It’s clear what’s happening inside the Climate Cult movement is not the methodology and practice of scientific climate theory. The Earth doesn’t adhere to the whims of the ever changing progressive vocabulary (Global warming, climate change, climate disruption), just like the Earth doesn’t care if 8 million people happen to reside in the path of a category five hurricane. If climate data has to be hidden, forged or enhanced in any way, it’s not science. That debate has actually been settled.  The question shouldn’t be why there are climate change deniers. No one denies climate change, and they know it. No matter what kind of word salad leftists and socialists try to create in dishonest attempts to paint anyone that raises an eyebrow when they are asked to don a cape or bow down to a tiki torch. We do however, very vehemently, deny the climate cult.

The Climate cult is a religion, complete with inquisitions, elaborate costumes, celebrations of the birth of their founding, doomsday prophecies and imaginary idols. It’s positively Jor-Ellian, the idea that a political ideology can stop the natural warming and cooling progressions of an entire planet.

Bzl0c21CIAE5v_9It’s a religion that is just over a hundred and thirty years old, trying to dictate to the rest of us that evolutionary patterns of a planet that is 4.5 billion years old are just a theory and a myth. They even have a power point presentation they like to impose on people with their own scientific beliefs.  They are Climate Evolution Deniers; the absolute rejection that the planet through its own natural behavior changes, adapts and evolves to the conditions inside it. The Earth changes and has changed naturally for billion of years, yet a small minority of cosplay activists believe the Earth should remain a static temperature at all times.

The rest of us are pro Earth and pro Climate Evolution. If the progressive left and Hollywood want to deny evolution, they’re free to try. If the climate cult wants to become a frothing seething imitation of Comic Con, they’re certainly welcome to It would not however be the scientific thing to do.

A better solution for Gore-El would be investing his millions in oil money into a Richard Branson designed rocket ship for him and his friends in Hollywood in search of a new planet to inhabit and leave the rest of us alone.

We’ll take our chances with the Earth.

Everything is Awesome, For Barack Obama

efe_venezuela_protestas_edited-movil

Earlier this month while visiting Monticello with a French delegation that included socialist President François Hollande, President Obama was caught in a moment joking about breaking protocol to view the grounds, quipping, “That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want.” Forget the enormity of the irony; an American President joking at Thomas Jefferson’s home that rules don’t apply to him and give Obama the benefit of the doubt that this was just a casual line.

It was no different than a line Michael Douglas would say in The American President or Kevin Kline in Dave or Martin Sheen in The West Wing, and that’s exactly the point. Obama has become a President of good lines from movies but unable to act like a very real leader.

The reason for the uproar over comments like this from this President is because he never wastes an opportunity to show just how right the absurdness of the social media noise machine is. When Obama jokes about being able to do whatever he wants, then turns around and hits an HBO producer up at a State Dinner for advanced copies of television shows to get him through an extended weekend, how are we as a desperate electorate supposed to react? We tolerate the luxuries afforded to our leaders. Just don’t be a dick about it.

How is a world currently engulfed in flames of revolution supposed to react?

The problem for a President who makes any excuse to hit up a golf course or admits to watching tons of HBO?is there are still events in the world happening outside his windows. People are desperate for American leadership and can’t wait for the killer on True Detective to be revealed.

Nobody in Kiev is interested in the fallout of the Red Wedding.

Nobody in Venezuela cares about the fate of Zoe Barnes.

Obama and his administration can’t wait to inject themselves into pop culture as it suits their narratives. If Lego Movie is number one at the box office, the Secretary of State is referencing global warming to 3D movies. If the Super Bowl is trending on social media, out come the football analogies. Michelle Obama is on Jimmy Fallon’s new Tonight Show and Joe Biden on Seth Meyer’s follow up. Actors pushing health care that they themselves refuse to sign up for. What message does it send the world when cries for democracy in Ukraine and Venezuela are met with silence, but tweeting about a cable show is paramount?

house of cardsBarack Obama is the first President optimized for SEO and therein lies the problem. When #Venezuela and #Kiev are the top trends on Twitter for two days straight and not #HouseOfCards or #TrueDetective, the online persona machine that elected Barack Obama goes dark and resorts to a spam account selling us crappy insurance.

At the height of violence that erupted with both protests this past weekend, where was he? Hosting a Hollywood premiere style party for #GeorgeClooney and cast of his film #TheMonumentsMen, in private at the White House, simply because he could. Right now in Kiev, historical statues and art are being burned in front of the world. He was content to remain silent and watch a movie about it happening instead. The real world does not interest this President. The set design does.

@BarackObama (an account run by these people) can tweet about House of Cards Spoilers but can’t be bothered to tweet a statement condemning violence from the regimes in Kiev and Venezuela and sign it -bo. Meanwhile millions of people globally are captivated by the live streams and Hugoesque images of revolution.

If Barack Obama is going to be a viral President, he can’t simply sit out the events of the world as he chooses. The coming out announcement of a former college and future NFL football star cannot outweigh events that have captivated the entire world for two days and cost people their blood and lives.

The same goes for his complex of dying network media defenders. If Occupy Wall St. and their twisted logic deserve prime time coverage by NBC, CBS and ABC, why not pro democracy rallies happening simultaneously in two different corners of the world? Instead, we’re stuck with Sunday morning show hosts drooling over Kevin Spacey. The networks become no different than the governments of those nations instituting blackouts. The desperate attempt to remain relevant and cool is accompanied now by a heavy vacuum of leadership in exactly the one country on the Earth it can’t have one in.

This is the eventual dilemma with electing a President under the superstar celebrity, media driven premise that Barack Obama was. Remember in 2008, this was not about electing another American politician to the Presidency. This was a citizen of the world, drawing outdoor crowds of over 70,000 people. This was a transcendence, not an election.

Oprah cried.

Obama in berlinCandidate Obama stepped up in front of the world and told us that this was the time we all began to heal. All over the world the same nations that yesterday believed this mysterious Kryptonian figure, now ignore him for the thrill of a molotov cocktail. Nations all over the world have rejected his movie speeches of peace and prosperity for his more clear, instinctual desires of social upheaval.

Why is this President, elected because of a hope he promised in front of the world, so content to sit it out instead?

Is he bored? Does massive public upheaval not interest him if it does not serve his political ends? Does it remind him that everything is in fact, not awesome?

I wrote about this very thing?last August when riots escalated in Egypt and the Administration’s top officials were all on vacation except for Joe Biden, who was talking to a camel. I’m forced to raise it again because of the current calamities in the Ukraine and Venezuela and here the country is once again forced to reconcile a disinterested President, completely unengaged with the moment as it unfolds in front of the rest of us. Instead he’s focusing on the weather, truck fuel and George Clooney.

Once again, on opposite sides of the globe thousands of people took to the streets of their respective nations demanding change from the heavy handed governments they have been suffering under. Right between these two uprisings sits the United States, with a historical American President who has a Nobel Peace Prize sitting on his mantle collecting dust.

And he’s watching HBO.

Railing on about growing income inequality one day, while the next hosting a lavish State Dinner for an open socialist. Two men committed to taxing the success right out of their countries while celebrating their own in luxury, all while our media commanding us to #BOWDOWN?to the queen. Optics matter.

Flying to California to blame a drought on Global Warming right before spending the entire afternoon golfing in it, while also using a separate airliner to fly bills for him to sign, matters.

Remaining silent on casualties of uprisings not aligned with our President’s personal philosophies, matters. Thousands of people right now in Venezuela and Kiev are risking their lives – 140 characters at a time.

Barack Obama uses his Twitter account to talk about magnets.

His personal statement on Kiev finally came yesterday while visiting Mexico, warning the Ukrainian Government, “There will be consequences if people step over the line.” Four days after the violence had reached a zenith, resulting in the reported deaths of 25 people in Kiev and 9 in Venezuela.

What line exactly is left to be crossed Mr. President?

He’s content to ride the worst of these situations out until the very end when he issues his stern warning and then can claim credit for tempering the situation. Until then, hey Girls is on!

If these examples seem absurd, it’s because they are and no one should have to be making them, but over and over again, we are. Barack Obama went in front of the world and told it that he would heal it. Six years later, there is not a single corner of the Earth that is better off than when he spoke those words.

Not even Winterfell.
